Tropheus Ikola 4-5 cm

Tropheus are one of among the most interesting and active of all African Cichlids. They are also unlike all other Lake Tanganyika cichlids. They can be highly aggressive, especially toward conspecifics, but this is not a given. Aggressiveness can be an individual trait among these fish, and it definitely is influenced in the aquarium by variables such as size, tank structure, and species mix.

Aquarium groups of Tropheus are very impressive to even the casual observer because of their usually gorgeous appearance and their hyperactivity. They are voracious feeders which will let little food reach tank mates.

To help prevent harassment of weaker individuals, Tropheus are better kept in groups of five or more--depending upon size of the aquarium. Known for the gorgeous yellow band on the back flank of both sexes and a red upper eye iris, the remainder of the body is dark black with a silver or bluish sheen depending on their mood.
